The Orange proved once again that is it not such a bad deal to have to play in the First Four…but they could be getting tired.
Michigan State didn’t come anywhere close to covering in their win over Bucknell but it is all about winning and advancing.
The Orange now have back to back upset wins as they advanced to the Round of 32. They keep the score low and do what they do.
Syracuse must be very frustrating to play against because they play that zone and most of the time are a three man team.
In beating TCU Marek Dolezaj led all scorers 17 points. He is a super slim 6’9″ and if they can coax another good game out of him this team has a shot.
The normally reliable duo of Frank Howard and Tyus Battle played all 40 minutes, they just weren’t on their game with a combined 14 points – fatigue?
Michigan State Spartans
Even though they did not dominate in their round one game I still like the Spartans to go far in the Tournament.
This game will be a test though as that Syracuse zone could expose the fact that this is not a great shooting team.
Miles Bridges had one of the best beck games of the season against Bucknell with 29 points. Now is a good time for your best players to step up.
Joshua Langford scored 22 against the Bison. That is a good sign because he often gets lost amongst their other players.

Free Syracuse Orange vs. Michigan State Spartans NCAAB Prediction:
The ceiling of these two teams is disparate but for one game I wouldn’t discount Syracuse.
For this one to be a game the Orange have to slow things down and not lose touch with the Spartans.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Syracuse +9.5
The Orange have a knack at slowing teams down and keeping themselves in the game. Even spent they will do so again in a loss.
